trying to buy a house in Vancouver?

In case you were still wondering why you are struggling to purchase a house in Vancouver…or if you were wondering why your rent is so high…The Vancouver Sun alerts us that we are one of the five least affordable cities in the world.  Recent conversations with people in the Cityview community have expressed hope that the downward trend in housing prices would prove helpful for them.  However, our friends on fixed incomes and below the poverty line are experiencing more challenges in finding places to live as rents move into the $1500 range for a two-bedroom.  I am currently concerned for some who are looking for new places because of redevelopment plans and in particular for one family that has gotten behind on rent because of less employment in the construction domain.
